f students initiate classes at wsc bywalt schaffer You say you've got an idea for a new class to be taught at WSC... Well now you the student have an opportunity to enter that' class in the school curriculum under the Experimental Studies program. The WSC J curriculum committee submitted the idea to the academic council who passed and approved the revised studies program in April. The program is not new. Since its conception eight months ago some 30 courses have been added to the curriculum. However the new version of the experimental studies program now allows students to initiate new courses. Dr. Thomas Burton, member of the curriculum committee, said, "the students are asking for relevance, so here's their opportunity." "This program will give the students the respect and status of being joint custodians of their curriculum and will provide a greater committment to the learning process," Dr. Burton added. Under the new program a student may initiate a course by obtaining a faculty sponsor. Under the new program a student may initiate a course by obtaining a faculty sponsor. Then an evaluation of the course idea, enrollment and course load will be determined by the student, faculty member and department head. Approval of the course will be sought from the department chairman, dean of the school, academic vice president and chairman of the school, academic vice president and chairman of the academic council. Each course in the program is taught or actively sponsored by a member of the faculty. The Experimental Studies program was established for the purpose of sponsoring and encouraging innovative approaches to education, for exploring new areas, new frontiers, and new methods. Credit earned by students in the special courses may be counted toward the hours required by the college for graduation. 7T rfl promotion discounts, Discounts and cash savings for all WSC students is the stated objective of the new Signpost promotional, "The WSC ID Discount."

The skyscraper, the suspension hritifie, the machine are objects which express the deepest feelings and aspirations of our time. For that reason more attention is paid here to engineers like Brunei, designer of the Thames Tunnel, than to the anachronistic Post-Impressionists. It is in this film that Lord Clark sums up. In spite of our atom blasts and Doomsday machines he concludes that civilization is inching ahead .. ."Like a rock climb, three steps up, two steps down but in the end ... an ascent." The forces of destruction have new,unheard-of-powers. But the onrush of inhuman technology has been accompanied by an upsurge in humanitarianism. And man has a unique talent for survival. "Nnlme is violent ntid brutnl, mui there's noticing we can do about it. But New York, after nil, was made by men. It took almost the sanw time to reach its present condition as it did to com-filete the Gothic cathedrals. At which noint a very obxnous reflection crosses one's mind; that the cathedrals xverc built to the yoiy of Cod, New York was btilt to the glory of Mammon; money, gain, the new god of the Nineteenth Century." autumn registration begins this month Advance reeistration for students planning to attend Weber State College next fall quarter will be held May 17, registrar's office, new Administration Building. Eligible to register are students now attending the spring quarter, said Milton C. Mecham, dean of admissions and records. "This is a new advance registration system which we believe will be more convenient for both students and the institution," Dean Mecham said. Packets and schedules will be distributed from the registrar's office from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, Mr. Mecham said. Course cards will be pulled for all students who pay either their full fees and tuition or for those who pay only the $10 registration fee. Students must complete packet cards as required and make payment under one of the two above options by presenting the packet cards to the cashier's office, Administration Building between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and then return the cards to the registrar's office for a receipt, Mr. Mecham said. Course cards will be given to the students in the order packets are received, so that it is to the student's advantage to return his registration at an early date, the registrar said. Students who pay only the registration fee when turning in packets may complete their payment of fees by mail. The social security number of the student should be on the face of the check. All fees must be paid by 3 p.m. Sept. 22, which is the last day of autumn registration or a late fee will be charged, regardless of the point at which cards were turned in or part of the payment was made, Mr. Mecham said. Mailing of packets during summer months will only be done if the student includes a stamped, addressed legal sized envelope, This accommodation is for those students who are undecided at this time as to future plans.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
